Off to a blistering start in 2017, Texas Rangers right fielder Nomar Mazara was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday, while Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto took home the honor in the National League following an equally impressive start to his season.

Mazara, the second-youngest position player in the majors, recorded multiple hits in four of his six games last week, going 10-for-24 (.417) with two doubles and two homers - including a grand slam in Friday's 10-6 victory over Oakland - while driving in nine runs.

Meanwhile, after breaking out last year, Realmuto showed no signs of slowing down early on in 2017, as the 26-year-old went 11-for-22 (.500) with two walks, one double, one triple, and a pair of homers in five games last week.
